Apps/Games/Themes without Rating not showing

With the new BB app world app, no Apps, Games or Themes that do not have a review/rating (stars) are not showing up when browsing a category.  It doesnt matter which search criteria you use they dont show (newest, price, app name etc.)  How are we supposed to get a rating, let alone sell anything if people only see apps that already have a rating?  The only way I can see my themes that do not have a rating is by directly searching for them.  This upgrade has completely removed the ability to sell anything newly posted.

Re: Apps/Games/Themes without Rating not showing

Would be great to know if RIM is looking into this and fixing it.  As it stands now there is no point in developping anything new for blackberry (Apps, games, themes) since nothing will be viewable on appwaorld 3.0 without a rating.  We are already feeling the effects.

Create a ticket via the vendor support form, it will attract RIM attention faster.

 

As a workaround you could just write a single review with rating for all of yours new apps/games/themes. Actually I'm surprised that you haven't done this already, it is a common approach the first review to be the vendor's review :smileywink:

Re: Apps/Games/Themes without Rating not showing

Ive already submitted a ticket in the issue tracker but honestly, from past experience the issue tracker seems useless. Tixket remain open and in triage for years. As far as the review, yea i could, but we shouldnt have to. RIM is basically our partner in this, if we dont make money, they dont. They need to get this fixed....its like weve been laid off.

I mean the vendor support form

Agreed that JIRA is kind of useless issue tracker
